The Penfolds’ Story: Giving Back Benefits All

Richard and Karen PenfoldRichard and Karen Penfold have been fundamental to the success of Kenmore Mercy Foundation since the early 1990s. From 1992-1997, Richard served as Chair of the Kenmore Mercy Hospital Board of Directors. He then joined the Kenmore Mercy Foundation Board of Trustees, where his leadership helped develop and shape the Foundation.

The Penfolds have been longtime contributors to the WNY community, since growing their family business into a regional environmental service company.
Throughout their time owning and operating the CID Group, Richard and Karen have supported many local non-profit organizations.

In the past 16 years, the Penfolds have made numerous contributions to improve Kenmore Mercy Hospital by sponsoring Foundation special events, contributing to the annual giving appeal and supporting several development campaigns.

“Kenmore Mercy holds a special place in our hearts,” Richard shared. “Karen and I are happy to support the important work done at Kenmore Mercy Hospital through the Foundation, and I enjoyed my years on the Hospital and Foundation boards. Many lasting friendships have continued throughout the years with the wonderful people we’ve been fortunate to meet. With God’s blessing, our relationship with Kenmore Mercy and those who make it the special place it is will continue.”
